Gifts of Family

My sister Alison was at a Primary Presidency meeting and her friend asked the group if anyone knew someone that could give her a hand with Adobe Photoshop. Alison gave her my name and phone number and boy am I so very glad that she did! The woman told me about a website that she found where you could download a free template of a photobook of the Family Proclamation! It is so awesome. You can change the colors of the background, throw in your pictures and it all correlates directly with the entire proclamation. It took me over a day to complete the book because I did manipulate the template to fit my needs. But in the end I created three different books for Christmas presents; one for my parents, one for John's parents and one for John. The website also shared a new publishing site that is 1/2 the cost of the one's I have used in the past. I haven't received them in the mail yet but here are a few pages from my mom's book:

Here is the website for anyone who is interested: http://www.legacydigitaldesign.com/Photobook/photobook.html
